Atiu Tours (Humphery family)

Atiu Caves, Cook Islands Atiu Caves, Cook Islands

Explore the island on a 4WD and walk through the tropical rainforest to find fossilised coral reefs (known as makatea). While the jagged edges of the exposed fossilised coral mean good footwear is necessary you are walking back in time. A highlight are the caves with their stunning stone water sculptural appearance. James, Metua and Marshall Humphreys offer three tours. The Kopeka cave tour is a must for the agile.

  • The Kopeka is a unique bird to Atiu. It echos its way around in the dark of Takitaki cave and uses its sharp eyesight outside to catch insects on the wing. It never lands outside and only rests upside down hanging from the ceiling of the cave. The Kopeka cave tour also features a candle light swim in an underground pool. If the tour is in the afternoon an enjoyable add-on is a visit to a tumunu.
  • Atiu Tours second tour is an island tour of Atiu showing you the interesting sights and giving you information on what is happening on Atiu now and what happened in the past. A light meal is provided.
  • The third tour is a visit to Rima Rau burial cave.
